48. What Is a Witch?

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

06/25/22 • 0 min

Can you believe we made it this long without doing an episode answering a question this basic? I mean, yeah, sure, I cover it a little in episode one — but after running across something online, I realized I really wanted to do something more complete on the matter. So that’s the question we’re answering this month.

Mostly.

Sort of.

You’ll find out.

And remember, if you want to get questions in for this year’s Q&A/Feedback episode, send them in before July 15th here!

22. Witches 4 Hire

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

04/25/20 • 34 min

So on last month’s episode we talked about would-be-gurus like Leah Steele. This month we’re instead going to look at her low-budget cousins though: Spell Farms. What’s a Spell Farm? They are websites where the average person can plunk down some money for a “witch” to cast a spell for them.

And they’re just as reliable and honest as they sound.

I got a question in my inbox from a listener asking if whether or not knowing a lot of Wicca was created less than a hundred years ago made it feel less legitimate. It’s an interesting question, and whether or not something being more “established” makes it more “real” is something I thought we should tackle.

Also, there’s a tiny bit more of that interview with author Bree NicGarran from last episode that serendipitously applied (that was cut), so I’ve included it here.

20. A Dabbler’s Week

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

02/29/20 • 30 min

We’ve talked before about how dabbling in witchcraft is not just perfectly acceptable, but should be encouraged. It leaves the question open though — just how does one dabble? With that in mind, and at the suggestion of Tumblr user AskSecularWitch, I’ve gone through and created a “Dabbler’s Week” — a week of activities that someone could do to get a taste of what my form of witchcraft is like.

So yeah. That’s the episode.

19. Citation Needed

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

01/25/20 • 26 min

While reading a post on The Wild Hunt I got to thinking about the wild world of self publishing and Witchcraft books. How does a new Witch know if a source is good or bad? How can they tell if it’s a genuine writer or a pen name optimized for SEO? Why is everything so frickin’ complicated?

Oh, and we now have merch.

18. Fricking Candles.

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

12/28/19 • 26 min

On this episode of the podcast we are talking about something this show rarely covers — actual practical spellcraft advice. Specifically, we’re just going to talk about candles. Yep, you read that correctly, this is twenty-something minutes of Trae talking about fricking candles.

It’ll make sense when you listen to it.

21. A Spiral of BS

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

03/28/20 • 35 min

So we don’t talk about a lot of new age gurus, life coaches, and other “spiritual leaders” on this show. But when so called “Wealth Witch” Leah Steele reached out to me literally out of nowhere this month... I ended up going down the weirdest rabbit hole that ended at an “Australian Sex Wizard.” That is a sentence I just typed.

Last month we went solidly into the Witchcraft category, this month we’re deep into the BS instead.

It’s that spooky time of year again. With Halloween and Samhain coming up in a few days, it’s time to talk about ghost stories again. This time around I’m joined by the author of Grovedaughter Witchery: Practical Spellcraft and The Sisters Grimmoire Bree NicGarran as we talk about our personal experiences with the paranormal. Like last year, this is an extended, hour long episode.

Oh, and I complain about deer for a minute in there. Because deer are annoying.

15. Witchcraft vs Paganism

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

09/28/19 • 22 min

On this episode of the podcast we’re digging into the differences between “Paganism” and “Witchcraft.” While there is clearly a lot of overlap between these two umbrella terms, there are some important differences.

So, yeah, let’s talk about them.

23. The Burning Times

BS-Free Witchcraft

play

05/30/20 • 31 min

On this installment of the podcast we tackle probably one of the more controversial topics in the modern witchcraft movement: The Burning Times. What were the actual “Burning Times,” where do we get that phrase from, and what really happened? Also, how has this phrase been used in modern witchcraft.

It’s a heavy one, folks.
